MIDDLEBURY — Friends of a Middlebury man killed in a motorcycle accident will collect donations in his honor to purchase new playground equipment.
Several friends of 20-year-old Evan Jones will collect donations in his name at the Northridge High School football game against NorthWood at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27.
The donations will be used to purchase a new piece of playground equipment for York Elementary School.
Josh Rheinheimer, a friend of Jones, said he and his friends will man a booth throughout the game and will also be collecting donations for the next month. Additional donations can be sent to Kim Cammenga at Northridge High School, 56779 Northridge Drive, Middlebury, 46540.
Any money remaining after purchasing the equipment and a dedication plaque will be donated to the Jones family, Rheinheimer said.
